In case you missed the game -- Dodge was supposed to punt the ball away from Philadelphia Eagles star DeSean Jackson in the final seconds of a tied up game ... but he didn't ... and Jackson scored.

After the game, another guy named Matt Dodge was blasted with Twitter hate mail -- people calling him a "chode blaster" and advising him to go into the witness protection program.

Matt Dodge (not the punter) responded, "Whoa, just got hella twitter spammed thanks to that gawtdamn NY Giants punter, also named matt dodge. Think he'll buy my account?"

As for the other Matt Dodge (punter) -- there's speculation the Giants will cut his ass this week.
